The course includes three hand-in projects to be solved at home. The aim of these projects is to gain a better understanding of some coding procedures by implementing them in software. The projects may be solved in groups of two people and discussion between different groups is also encouraged.
In order to qualify for the exam, everybody needs to hand in and get accepted at least one of the projects.
